silver plate wire pendant wrapped with blue wires

This weeks  'Monday makes'  
has been inspired by the Hebridean sea from a recent holiday

This design started as an idea that has developed over the last week - So this morning I sat out in the sunshine and made this pendant, while I was making it so many other options were forming in my head, so may be I will be making  a few more pendants yet!

blue and green beaded jewellery

Having just spent two weeks in the Hebrides surrounded by sea, the colour of which changed daily from steely grey to a stunning deep blue I shouldn't be surprised that I chose to make jewellery in these colours this week, they just shouted out at me.
A necklace, bracelet and matching earrings.

Budget wedding jewellery - Wedding Wednesday

Not everyone wants to or can afford to spend thousands of pounds on a wedding, but most brides still want to feel like a princess for the day. I make jewellery in a range of styles with a variety of beads from freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals to glass beads and pearls. Today's one of a kind necklace for Wedding Wednesday is a pretty string of glass pearls and beads. it measures 20 inches inc. clasp which is silver plate - cost £15

A sweet little necklace for a bride

This pretty necklace would be ideal for a bride who is looking for something simple but with a bit of pearl and sparkle - it measures 16 inches and is made with a glass crystal bead, glass pearls and diamante beads and is on a fine silver plate chain.

Bronze wire and amber coloured bead earrings

I chose to loosely encircle these amber coloured beads with bronze wire to make these unique, one off earrings - these earrings are on black plate ear hooks to pick out the dark stripe in the bead

crocheted wire and bead stick pin

Following on the the knitted bracelet in my previous post I also crocheted this cup with wire and beads and added the same button as I used for the bracelet clasp as the centre bead and then I attached it to a stick pin to make this dress pin
